Hendrix Grads Grab Inaugural Arkansas Fellowship

CONWAY, Ark. (June 4, 2014) – Two 2014 Hendrix graduates Travis Finch and Sreesh Reddy were recently selected for the inaugural class of 11 Arkansas Fellows.

The Arkansas Fellowship matches graduating Arkansas college seniors and with Arkansas host companies to develop the next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders by keeping the state's best talent at home.

Finch, who graduated from Hendrix in May with his master’s degree in accounting, is from Paragould, Ark. His host company is the Circumference Group.

Reddy, a 2014 graduate from Little Rock, Ark., received his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology. Reddy will intern with Little Rock-based Perks.

Finch and Reddy were recognized at a reception hosted by Gov. Mike Beebe on at the Governor's Mansion.
